Four Lions

7/10
Crime . Comedy . Drama
 

Four Lions tells the story of a group of British jihadists who push their abstract dreams of glory to the breaking point. As the wheels fly off, and their competing ideologies clash, what emerges is an emotionally engaging (and entirely plausible) farce. In a storm of razor-sharp verbal jousting and large-scale set pieces, Four Lions is a comic tour de force; it shows that-while terrorism is about ideology-it can also be about idiots.

More Info:
  • Richard Corliss

    What explosive mischief might they create? That's the premise of Morris' brilliantly incendiary new comedy Four Lions.

    Time Full Review
  • Pam Grady

    While the film is likely to find outright rejection among those who remain jittery with each turn in the War Against Terror, it should find a warm reception with fans of dark, outrageous humor.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    A shockingly hilarious, stiletto-sharp satire directed by Chris Morris and written by a squad of British wits.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    A dense, sharp, hilarious and unflinching film about a group of British Muslims who seek to shock the world with an apocalyptic act of jihad but are too dumb, contentious and accident-prone to succeed at anything much more audacious than ringing a doorbell and running.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    These guys are not charming; they're horrifying in their ignorance, and they cause real damage. But there's a weird relief to be found in the opportunity to laugh ourselves sick at their expense, if only for an instant.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Chris Morris' corrosive black comedy Four Lions explores the lighter side of jihad. It's a ballsy romp through one of the least lighthearted subjects imaginable.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The very existence of Four Lions is an act of audacity; the fact that it's also smart, humane, and frequently hilarious is nothing short of a miracle.

    Slate Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    He's (Chris Morris) breaking taboos because broken taboos can be hilarious.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Duane Byrge

    A hilarious farce and a brilliant takedown of the imbecility of fanaticism.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    Guaranteed to offend a lot of folks across the political and belief spectrum, but consistently funny and horribly to the point. A sit-com spin-off is probably not on the cards, though.

    Empire Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    This is provocative stuff, to be sure, in which the stakes are so high that a pratfall concludes with exploding limbs and the anguished effect of its final minutes is a quiet shock to the system. A comedy of errors and terrors? Who woulda thunk it?

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    This is a comedy about imbeciles who fall blindly in love with a concept, without giving any thought to what they are doing. And although some of them eventually have a moment of self-realization, it arrives, sadly, much too late.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Its chilling third act suggests that sooner or later, even these riders on the Islamic short bus are going to get one right. And that won't be funny at all.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    The whole thing is kind of comforting in a damn-the-torpedoes, laugh-at-what-scares-you-most kind of way.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Four Lions is impossible to categorize. It's an exceedingly dark comedy, a wicked satire, a thriller where the thrills center on the incompetence of the villains.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Richard Nilsen

    Four Lions is a comedy about terrorism. No, not a thoughtful, intellectual take on the absurdities of suicide bombing. It's slapstick. Actually, it's the Three Stooges of Jihad.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    The comedy divides cleanly into dark, violent slapstick (much of it hilarious) and more routine gags highlighting the fanatical characters' foolishness and incompetence.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Michael Ordona

    Doesn't offer moviegoers one obvious message, but rather a complex and considered glimpse into a rarely seen world, one of utter absurdity and horror.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The idea, in the end, is that even lovable loonies can do a lot of damage.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    When it works - and it doesn't half the time - it's as if Monty Python were back, putting its merrily imbecilic stamp on the dark world of terrorism.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    While these ninnies' antics and banter are remarkably entertaining, the quality of the satire depends on when the movie is sending up ludicrous extremist logic and when it's just engaging in repetitive buffoonery.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Stephen Cole

    Has a provocative, ticklish premise – five North England Muslims become suicide bombers, but can't decide who or what to take with them.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • David Lewis

    Probably the world's first jihad terrorist comedy, Four Lions is a daring, brilliantly conceptualized film, but like the bumbling bombers of the title, the execution tends to be hit-and-miss.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Real satire must be savage, and Four Lions, for all its daring, finally doesn't dare enough.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    An audacious premise gets dangerously unstable execution in Four Lions, a ballsy but wobbly high-concept farce that sends up the bumbling schemes of a Blighty-based jihadist cell.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The only reason to see it is Riz Ahmed's performance as Omar, the supposed brains of the operation. Mr. Ahmed reminded me a bit of Robert Carlyle. He's dynamic, quick-tongued and intense. And much too classy for this tatty room.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • V.A. Musetto

    If all terrorists were like these idiots, the US would have nothing to worry about.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    The invective energy of Four Lions and its Swiftian vision of a confederacy of dunces are never in doubt. The problem is one of form. [15 Nov. 2010, p.99]
